Continuing in the footsteps of the multiple award-nominated anthologies Eclipse One, Eclipse Two, and Eclipse Three, Eclipse Four delivers new fiction by some of the genre’s most celebrated authors, including Andy Duncan’s tale of a man’s gamble that he can outrun a bullet; Caitlin R. Kiernan’s story of lovers contemplating the gravity of a tiny black hole; Damien Broderick’s chronicle of a bean-counter who acquires a most curious cat; Michael Swanwick’s tale of the grey man who pulls an unhappy woman from the path of an oncoming train; Nalo Hopkinson’s story of ghosts haunting a shopping mall; and Gwyneth Jones’s story of an alien priest who suffers a crisis of faith….
